SDCC 09: Peter Jackson Talks Horror

San Diego Comic-Con 2009You just never know who you’re gonna run into here at the SDCC. In this case … we ran into a small time director whom you may have heard of, Peter Jackson, and he blessed us with some insight into the genre that we all love!

“We need more original ideas, and more splatter” says Jackson who’s in town promoting the new film he just produced, District 9. He agrees that much of the originality has been sucked out of the horror genre and his “urge to create a unique horror film is higher than ever“.

Jackson also confirmed that the rumor about him working on a Nazi zombie film was complete bullshit but he was amused by the idea. In a perfect world, people! Let’s hope Peter gets back to the red stuff sooner rather than later.

    Pete Jackson is the fuckin’ Mack. Don’t ever forget it!

    THE LOVELY BONES has been in the can for a while (and should be fucking incredible!). Don’t be surprised if he’s been making a sly gore-fest project on weekends in his spare time.

    A bunch of Oscars can’t possibly take that out of him.

    “We need more original ideas.”
    Wow. How profound, hahaha.

    Too bad there’s no Nazi zombie opus coming from Mr. Jackson though. Then again, after Dead Snow (or SHock Waves, or the aborted Worst Case Scenario) that wouldn’t have been very original.

    I’ll believe it when I see it. To me, right now, it sounds like lip service.
